 The Carroll County Literacy Council: A Pathway to Citizenship

Groups all across this country should do what this council is doing, they are helping immigrants through every step to become a citizen.  - - Donna Poisl

Staff from the Carroll County Literacy Council traveled to Tulsa on March 26th to attend a workshop sponsored by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. The title of the workshop was "Teaching Civics and Citizenship to Immigrants."

"Most people don't know that applying for U.S. citizenship is a multi-step process that can take years to achieve," said Sharon Sloan, President of the Carroll County Literacy Council (CCLC). "It is also an expensive process. Just filling out and filing the N-400, the Application for Naturalization form, costs $680."
